One key feature that I would look for when choosing PIM software is one that has Outlook PIM integration. What this means in a nutshell is that you're able to export contacts from Outlook into your personal information software, and you're able to export information from your PIM software into Outlook on someones computer.

This is nice if you're transferring information from your home computer onto a laptop that you take to work. With Outlook PIM integration, you can easily send contact information from your home computers PIM software over to Outlook on your laptop. This will help save you time from writing things out in duplicate for another program, or even possibly having to write out all of the information on a piece of paper!

Is Only Outlook PIM Integration Supported?

No, this isn't the case at all! Any good piece of address book software should support as many different types of programs and platforms as necessary. Doing this would increase the amount of people that would potentially purchase their product. I think when looking for a PIM program to buy, choosing one that supports many programs and file types is a must.

This is one of my favorite things about PIM software; a lot of the programs will allow you to work with many other programs. Usually you find the opposite in the computer industry with companies only having their software work with each other. It's nice to see programs that are designed with the consumer and compatibility in mind.
